WJZ-TVreports that 1.112 million area viewers watched the Ravens-Patriots game on Channel 13 Sunday, setting what is believed to be a record for the station, according to general manager Jay Newman. The game was seen by 78,000 more local viewers than watched the Ravens-Giants Super Bowl in 2001, according to Nielsen data from WJZ. The audience in the Baltimore TV market was 1.269 million for the final minutes of the game when a missed 32-yard field goal left the Ravens a 23-20 loser instead of sending the game into overtime.

As reported yesterday, WBAL's new afternoon strategy of "Ellen" at 4 p.m. opened strong on Monday. And it did well again on Tuesday in Oprah's old spot with viewers 25 to 54 years of age. But WJZ, which had tennis on Monday, came roaring back Tuesday with the premiere of its afternoon lineup to dominate in overall afternoon viewership. From 2 to 3 p.m. WJZ's "The Talk" more than doubled WBAL drawing 53,300 viewers to 20,500 for Anderson Cooper's new show. Meanwhile, Jerry Springer drew 31,900 viewers for WBFF, with WMAR getting an audience of 13,200 for "One Life to Live.

WJZ is still the highest-rated station in Baltimore around the clock, but WBAL is No. 1 in nighttime news across the board - with historic margins of victory at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. That's the story of the November sweeps in Baltimore, which ended at midnight Wednesday. While WBAL, Baltimore's NBC affiliate, has beaten CBS-owned WJZ newscasts at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. before, the distance between the two has never been as great during the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts since Nielsen Media Research started using meters to measure viewership in 1992.

Super Bowl commercials are nearly as anticipated as the game, and local companies grabbing some of that attention Sunday included Royal Farms and Union Memorial Hospital. Advertisers know the Super Bowl is one of the best-watched programs of the year — and they're willing to pay for the opportunity, as much as $4 million this year for a 30-second spot. For area advertisers, it's arguably an even better opportunity when the local team is playing. "It's a chance to reach well over a million of their clients or customers," says Jay Newman, president of WJZ. "There's no event that will air on television that will come close to the numbers the Super Bowl will reach.

So, castaway Rich, the endlessly conniving corporate consultant, won the million-dollar prize last night on CBS' "Survivor," and this strange summer of voyeuristic reality programming is coming to an end. But television has been changed dramatically by "Survivor" and last summer's blockbuster reality program, ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire." The outlines of the new prime-time landscape they are shaping are only starting to be seen. And the culture might be changing, too. The big cultural question this morning - discussed under the heading of when good things happen to bad people - is the meaning of Rich's victory.

Things remained pretty much unchanged on the local news front last month, as WJZ, Channel 13, continued to outperform WBAL, Channel 11, in four of the five daily news slots. Just as it had in the November ratings book, WJZ finished on top in the morning, midday, 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. news slots, while WBAL managed to eke out a narrow victory at 5 p.m. The February sweeps numbers continue the good-news pattern for new WJZ vice president and general manager Jay Newman, who arrived on the job in November, just in time to watch his station wrest superiority in the key 11 p.m. daily time slot from WBAL.
